Calzone

I apologize in advance that this one is not Vegan, but can easily be made so by using a Vegan cheese product or tofu ricotta….oooh, I should’ve gone the tofu ricotta route….that sounds delicious.  I’ve actually never made a calzone before, but we were thinking pizza last night and I decided “why not take it [...]

Penzy’s Potato Salad

This potato salad recipe was adapted from “Mom’s Kitchen Sink Potato Salad”  in the 2009 Penzy’s spices catalog.  The picture made my mouth water, so I had to make it, albeit minus the chicken stock, hard-boiled egg, and bacon.  I also messed with the amounts a bit, so bare with me, I’ll post the entire [...]

Mango-Ginger Tofu and Sesame-Ginger-Miso Dressing

I never thought I’d say this, but there is such a thing as “too much mango”.  I’ll go head and admit it, the Mango-Ginger tofu from VwaV was too much mango for me.   I could only handle a small helping of this stuff because it was just so overpoweringly sweet and mango-ey.  There was no [...]

Quick Italian Pasta

I AM still alive…the last few days I was being fed by others as my best friend (an awesome vegan!) was getting married and I was in the wedding party.  Today’s dinner was my pretty standard “there’s nothing in the fridge” meal, seeing as we were doing shopping AFTER the meal.  I’ve done this (or [...]

Passover Friendly Food fit for Royalty

For 8 days, I can’t have ANY wheat products (bread, cereal, pasta, rice, couscous, wheat gluten, etc) dried beans and the products they make (soy, chickpeas, navy, kidney, lima, black, butter, etc) and no peanuts.  Basically, this is the anti-vegetarian holiday, and I generally hate what I eat for this week.  Not tonight…this was all [...]

Sesame Asparagus and an Old Favorite Improved

I made a green salad with the homemade miso dressing from Vegetarian Planet as well, but it isn’t pictured. I said there would be more asparagus if they continued to look so delicious, and here it is: This is the sesame asparagus recipe from VwaV, which is really simple, but good. I’ve never had an [...]

Asian Noodle Soup with Bok Choy and Shitake Mushrooms, Bok Choy, Edamame, Cashew and Orange Rice, and Cold Asparagus with Korean Sauce

You know what’s really annoying? Cookbooks that feel the need to name every recipe after ALL of its ingredients, so that my blog title is about three feet long. Obviously they were thinking of what this would do to me when they published the cookbook…and I DON’T appreciate the sentiment. But all that aside, this [...]

Un-Crabcakes and Southwestern Corn Pudding

This was a Southern themed dinner, albeit from different sides of the south. Representing the Bayou, we have Vegan Dad’s Crispy Cajun Crabcakes Mine looked nothing like his, but they tasted pretty darn good…I suppose I just don’t have his skill as far as beautiful food goes. Mine were also more yellow then red, which [...]

Pepper Bake and Pad Thai

The pepper bake is actually a thicker version of a flatbread, and is VERY good. The recipe came from Madhur Jaffrey’s World Vegetarian and was real easy to make. There’s no yeast involved, as I’m sure you can tell from the picture, although it does require you to cover and leave it alone for an [...]

Pea Soup and Jamaican Jerk Seitan

First off…I have to give credit to Jamie Oliver, he redeemed himself with this one. The only change required to make this soup vegan was replacing the chicken broth with vegetable…or in this case “not chik’n broth”. You can’t see it in the picture, but this is chock full of fresh peas, undoubtedly the best [...]
